    Is he too conservative to win the linguini spined liberal GOP nod ?

    Let me put it this way. If Alan Keyes could not win Tom Tancredo does not have a chance. Since Tancredo opposes illegal immigrants the popular, mainstream, media will paint him to be a right-wing racist. He is not that, of course, but that is what they will make him out to be. So, no, I don't think Tancredo can win the GOP bid or the national election.

    Tancredo? I'd say so, the GOP is shooting themselves in the foot on the illegal immigration issue, Tancredo's in the minority of the minority.

    Meet the new RNC chairman:

    http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2007-01-19-martinez_x.htm

    A former trial lawyer who's pro-amnesty.

    In other words, he and the other RINO's wil alsol "have to" paint Tancerdo as a bigot. Tommy has an uphill battle.

    That reminds me. I wanted to , and actually was ready in supporting Alan Keyes. He seemed to be gaining ground when out of left field he drew out that Ace of Diamonds race card, sending him home in disgrace. I couldn't believe it.

    It's between Tancredo & Mike Adams, for me, so far.

    Hey Bro. Curtis,

    I trust that all is well with you and your family.

    I would have to agree with the others on this issue: that is, unless Tancredo can get Karl Rove on his campaign. If that happens, he has a shot.

    God's Blessings to you,
    BiR (it is cold in Richmond, so my bike is back in the liquid trainer)

    This man sounds like the real deal to me. Look at who else is running. Makes the choice pretty simple.

    Tancredo has a hard row to hoe and to be sure he will be accused of racism every chance that the pro- amnesty crowd has a say.
    Irregardless of his chances, I think it is important that he run if for no other reason but to debate the issues and to rally on the cause for curbing illegal immigration.
    I am anxious to hear more from Tancredo in the forthcoming months ahead.

    Ron Paul has a much broader base of support than Tom Tancredo while being anti-illegal immigration as well.

    Hopefully, Tancredo will stand down and allow Paul a clear shot at the votes of those in favor of limited, constitutional government. If Paul wins the GOP nomination, Tancredo would be a great running mate for him.

    I live in Tancredo's district. He is a one-trick pony, seeking media attention. He will never be President.
